about

"A tribute to Reggae music and its original message", so Alex D Prez, producer of Torreggae, defines what for him represents the song “Roots and Culture”.
Pursuing this objective from the beginning, he is inspired by the sound of King Tubby and produces a beat with Reggae/Hip Hop sounds, finding in the style and lyrics of Dope One, Neapolitan mc who has been on the scene since 1997 boasting participations in numerous projects and featuring with prominent artists, the right combination to make it happen.

Published with A Different Records, it's available from 31 January 2018 on digital platforms together with the videoclip directed by Michele Pesce/WeLikeThefish.

Track Name: Roots and Culture
DOPE ONE - ROOTS AND CULTURE:

A Gent e ogg nun s'accorg e che'rè o ben
p'chest port roots and culture
I nun sacc nient
pche'm mpar semp
na vit chin e rischi, n'mc e nu giradisc
Cont l'educazion ind a vita real
napulitan over no film banal
no fint carnal, l'origin ra percezion
a diffusion ra cultur tramit beat e parol
O destin e st'omm è a music comm veicl,
nun è underground chist è l'hip hop re vicl
c'munn foss s'nun foss frat co prossim
rusucat comme tutt quant zucat' ro vortic
I ce camp, vint ann, rind o camp
a part cognitiv e l'ippocamp magn l'ignorant
Dedicat e femmn
ca so bloccat a secl
Uommen pe dicr sit stat chiu debl.

CHORUS:
A gent e ogg nun s'accorg che'rè o ben
P chest port roots and culture
N'epc nuclear, n'atu funeral, song e renar a radic e tutt e mal
M facc strad miez e pret ca m chiuren o passagg, a vrità c vec finalment nun è nu miragg
I nun so ncazzat, i nun schif o munn, sacc sulament ca senza radici affunn

Ann nvntat a drog p v'accirere e cervell, microchip ind a pell, e frat mi rind a cell
Ce vonn resettà a cultur rest ind a memoria
ann nvntat storie nun simm fans da fandonia
Argoment o renar, rap tutt ugual
nun è nu trend difend o livell cultural
Investn capital pe centr e scummess
nun esser tal e qual, p me è na scummess
O'sound e Dope One è suggerit e criatur
Vuless nu scrittor comm nu ministr a cultur
Chell c vogl è riconosciment social
e m rispiac s pnzat co dialett è volgar
Sta robb son acid comm Aphex Twin, m'attrezz ì, veng nziem a Alex D
Simpatia e ammirazion, antipatia e disprezz, preferisc a primm che è firmat da D Prez

CHORUS

Agg regalat a tutt quant l'al p vulà, e radic p turnà, e mutiv p restà cà
mett e radic rind a l'at Fra nun mor maje, everyday is a gun shot, modalità freestyle
E radic sò amar, mentr e frutt sò doce
e a pucundria è a tempest che spezz tutt e ram muort
È facil sbaglià quann l'ostacl è a paur
e megl insegnament m l'hann rat malat e criatur
E sentiment brutt so rancor e indifferenz
vint ann ngopp o mic e port ancor a differenz
Vann a rot ra musica mì
Pacienz e fedeltà contr depression e medicin.
